Artist Melissa McKinnon and her painting “In This Moment” featured in the Lethbridge Herald newspaper.

Last week I was invited to Lethbridge to sit down with Global TV and the Lethbridge Herald to interview about my painting “In This Moment” which is being raffled off to raise money for The Alzheimer’s Society of Alberta.

By donating this painting, I hope to raise a TON of money for the Alzheimer’s Society, so in turn, they can do what they do best and help those affected by this terrible disease. With every $20 donation to the Hearts and Art for Alzheimer’s 2014 Fundraiser you will receive a raffle ticket and the chance to own this original painting.

Raffle tickets are $20 and available for purchase until FEBRUARY 28, 2014.

To BUY TICKETS and read more about the inspiration behind this painting CLICK HERE.

Please “LIKE” and SHARE this post via email, Facebook and Twitter to help me spread the word. Just click on the social media buttons at the bottom of this page.

Thank you Mark Campbell from Scene and Heard on Global TV  and Nick Kuhl  and David Rossiter from the Lethbridge Herald for helping me raise awareness for Alzheimer’s (and for making me look so good)!

Update and Praise for “Together We Stand” – Two Original Paintings Created in Response to the 2013 Southern Alberta Flood Disaster

In June 2013 much of Southern Alberta was devastated by severe floods. Thankfully our family was unaffected by the disaster but many of our friends and fellow Albertans were. Over 100,000 people were evacuated and many of them suffered damage and loss of their homes and personal belongings.

As an immediate response to the disaster, I created and auctioned two original fine art paintings in effort to raise awareness and financial aid for the Canadian Red Cross in support of the Southern Alberta Flood Relief 2013.

You can view the original post HERE.

“Together We Stand I and II” (Diptych)
12×12 Original Acrylic Aspen / Birch Tree Painting on Canvas by Calgary Artist Melissa McKinnon
ART AUCTION, 100% of PROCEEDS donated to the CANADIAN RED CROSS in support of the Southern Alberta Flood Relief 2013
Bid on this painting at the bottom of this post or email melissamckinnonart@hotmail.com

I created these two paintings as a response to the flood devastation. I wanted to remind Albertans of how beautiful and inspirational our Province is. These paintings are a representation of the ever-changing beauty of our Alberta landscape as well as the resiliency that we as a people are known for. The paintings are titled ”Together We Stand” because even throughout this time of crisis Albertans have come together through countless hours of volunteerism, personal sacrifice and an unwavering positive spirit.

The online auction was a huge success! My sincerest gratitude to everyone who bid and/or shared the news via social media and word of mouth. It spread like wild fire! I even received a bid all the way from the Netherlands. I am truly touched and grateful that in only 3 days we were able raise so much money for the Red Cross.

I received this note recently from June, the lucky winner:

“Hi Melissa, just a quick note to let you know that the two paintings have now found their permanent resting place after several re-arrangements of both furniture and existing pictures. I love the paintings and as I said to you when I picked them up, although small they are full of life. They have been placed in the foyer so that they may be enjoyed by everyone who enters my home.Thank you also for doing this on behalf of the Red Cross in support of the flood relief and I am glad I was the lucky winner.

June”

Here is a photo of June, with my paintings proudly displayed in the foyer of her home.

Your advice is needed, help me name this painting! Original Acrylic Aspen / Birch Tree Painting by Canadian Artist Melissa McKinnon

Autumn / Aspen Birch Tree Painting

Autumn / Aspen Birch Tree Painting

This painting has been finished and ready to share for a while but I am having a really difficult time giving it a title. I was hoping that you could help!? Please leave me a comment in the box provided below this post or contact me directly with your suggestions.

Here is some additional information to inspire you:

This painting is lightly textured and has hints of shimmery gold and copper that peak out from behind the foliage. The metallic shimmer is difficult to capture in a photograph but here is a close-up detail to give you a better idea of what the painting would look like in person.

Here is a quote from Roald Dahl that inspires me and I find that it relates well to this painting, perhaps it will inspire your suggestion for a title.

“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.  Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” ~Roald Dahl

I can’t wait to hear all of your suggestions. Maybe something that you share will not only inspire a title for this painting but a title for my next one! Thank you for your help, please leave your comments in the box provided below.
